"Holding My Own" as written by Daniel Francis Hawkins, Francis Gilles Poullain-patterson, Edwin James Graham and Justin David Hawkins....
Baby, everything has fallen into place
My life is so exciting now I've got my space
Like a splash of water on my face
Lately I'm doing what I can do to pleasure me
I'm finding time to focus on my fantasies
I'm satisfied in my own company

I don't need your permission
To take this matter in my own two hands

'Cause I'm holding my own
Give or take a tear or two
I'm holding my own
No matter what I put myself through

Lady, all we seem to do is talk about
We take apart and analyze our ins and outs
Honey, I would rather do without

No-one to answer to
I won't spend another lifetime begging you

'Cause I'm holding my own
Give or take a tear or two
I'm holding my own
No matter what I put myself through
I'm holding my own

There's a spring in my stride
There's a twinkle in my dying eyes

'Cause I'm holding my own
Give or take a tear or two
I'm holding my own
No matter what I put myself through

    General Commentas ed graham (drummer) said: 'Holding My Own is about wanking. But if you can look past that, its got a deeper meaning.'

    General CommentThis song is about masturbation, but to me it's always been an anthem for the sweet release of getting our of a long term relationship that you felt trapped under. I really connect to it with that meaning of a new found personal freedom.

    General Commenthmmm this is a dilly of a pickle. I dunno if it's about masturbation or not. When i first heard it i didn't think of masturbation. But then again, it does kinda fit in. .. mainly the first paragraph tho.. ANd LoveMeMoreThanToast commented the rolling stone said it was about masturbation.... i just don't know..(by the way DARKNESS ARE AWESOME WHOO!)
